Flame Retardant

Due to increasing demands in fire protection regulations it has become necessary to modify the flame retardancy behaviour of plastics. Flame retardants action is to retard the flammability of plastics in order to minimise their ignition properties and burning behaviour such as flame propagation, smoke, and heat.

We can offer Halogenated and Non-halogenated Flame Retardant Additive, Masterbatch and Compound based on the end application.

Different tests standards are used to decide performance criteria of flame retardants based on end use of the plastic product.

  • UL-94 with classifications V-0, V-1 and V-2 (for electric installations)
  • LOI (with specification of the minimal oxygen concentration to maintain a fire)
  • DIN 54332 – Test for carpets
  • DIN 54336, BS 5438 and NFPA 701 – Test for fabrics
  • FMVSS 302 – Test for the automobile industry
  • Large variety of other very special tests which vary from country to country
